Frumpy Butt

In the past month, I have been called old three times.

1. A stranger at Target:
Stranger: How old are you?
Erin: 27.
Stranger: Oh, I would have thought you were older.

2. A cousin:
Erin: Are you on Facebook? You should look me up.
Cousin: You're on Facebook? It seems like a lot of older people are on Facebook. Imean,I'mnotcallingyouoldoranything.

3. My friend's girlfriend:
Girlfriend: You are what I'm going to look like in a couple of years.
Erin: Well, how old are you?
Girlfriend: 25.

Is it me? Is it something I'm putting out there? Is it my clothes? My hair? My makeup? Is it because I don't show stomach skin? Or back skin? Is my idea of modest dress actually frumpy?
Someone help me. I didn't THINK I was old, but I'm starting to.

If you wear hip-huggers with a hot pink thong peeking out it will subtract a few years off :)

Seriously, enjoy the fact that people don't think you're the babysitter when you're out with Shirley. Being mistaken as an irresponsible teenager who got knocked up gets tiresome at times!

I'm liking the picture. I printed it and put it on my fridge.

I've been told I look frumpy too, maybe we should hit the thrift store and find some trashy clothes.
I tried wearing black eye liner last night to Awana to look a little sexier....And Mikayla said I looked Goth.
O' well Goth is better than frumpy.

You're not old until your students are guessing your age and say 84. Trust me.

Erin, you're beautiful. I've been feeling frumpy myself, so I'm not much help.

It's my kids that seem to age me. I have many interns who are actually older than me, which they think is weird to have a supervising doctor of which they surpass in age. When I ask them what is peculiar about it, they say that it's because I have kids, I seem older..... Ish.
